The nature of charging your phone in your car poses a risk to your phone. Most people use the cigarette lighter, which generally provides 12V.

“Smartphones typically use 5V when charging, which the adapter is normally able to safely regulate the voltage,” Joshua Sutton, uBreakiFix Training Department Manager, told Reader’s Digest. “However, if the adapter is malfunctioning or is not made by your phone’s manufacturer, it can send too much power to your smartphone and potentially damage it. Most of the time you may not immediately notice this damage as it generally affects your phone battery first, diminishing the health of the battery.” This is how you can charge your phone as quickly as possible.
